However, these results are silent to the question, whether this effect is due to an overly optimistic view of their social environment or whether the social environment actually provides optimists with more support than pessimists. Accordingly, the present study tested in an experimental design whether potential support providers react differently towards optimists, pessimists and realists. Participants viewed videotaped interactions displaying either an optimistic, pessimistic or realistic target person. Results show that the personality, the behavior and the interpersonal attraction of optimists and realists were evaluated more positively than that of pessimists. Nonetheless, participants were equally or even less willing to provide social support to optimists compared to pessimists and realists. Thus, the greater amount of received support reported by optimists possibly represents an optimistically biased perception rather than a veridical reflection of the support they are provided with.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dc:contributor>Vollmann, Manja</dc:contributor> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:contributor>Renner, Britta</dc:contributor> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>Publ. in: Applied Psychology: Health and Well-Being, 2 (2010), 3, pp. 362-373</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> <dc:creator>Renner, Britta</dc:creator> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/43"/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2011-03-25T09:28:01Z</dc:date> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/43"/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dcterms:title>Better liked but not more supported : Optimism and social support from a provider's perspective</dcterms:title> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/page/termsofuse"/> <dcterms:issued>2010</dcterms:issued> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="http://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/11371"/> <dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/11371/1/Vollmann_Renner_2010.pdf"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
